Most of the non-SLS shampoos don't clarify the scalp and leave buildup in the hair, most of the SLS shampoos leave the scalp dry, then over-oily and irritated. This shampoo actually does clarify! I was amazed how much buildup it has removed from my hair and how quickly. It smells really good and a little goes a long way. Moisture wise I am happy as well, I use it with Smooth As Silk Conditioner and Nutrafix hair reconstructor, and my hair got softer, smoother and even more straight.

Liked this shampoo, but wish ingredients would be better. Also need to use conditioner together because after using only shampoo my hair are too dry.

I am a 24yr old black woman, and this product works for me. It left my hair feeling a tad dry but I used the Giovanni direct leave in conditioner after wards and my hair felt amazing! I've been on a search for a great product for natural black hair, this one seems to be the best shampoo I've used.

Good for curly hair. Strips the hair of heavy hair products.

Lather: soft and rich, enjoyable. Moisture: must follow with hair conditioner. Scent: smells sweet and pleasant, does linger on the hair. Residue: no Price: affordable but not entirely clean ingredients. Thus deduct 1 star.

I guess I expected much more from this product. There are so many 5-star reviews for this shampoo, but I can't give it more than 4 stars. It's certainly better than mass market shampoos, but not good enough to make me buy it again. May be it just doesn't work for my hair.

The moisturising effects of this shampoo are great for fine, wavy hair like mine. This shampoo cleans well without stripping my hair of moisture, which is always a bonus. It lathers really well, and - when combined with its conditioner - leaves the hair well moisturised.

I really like this shampoo! It's very gentle since it doesn't contain sulphates, but it lathers well and makes my hair feeling clean. I still recommend using a deep cleansing shampoo once in a while, especially if you use a lot of styling products like I do. My scalp is quite dry, so this shampoo is very good for me. It has a very faint citrus smell, nothing overpowering. However, I don't think this makes my hair "smooth as silk" (even if I use it with the conditioner), but that's ok, because my hair is naturally thin and straight. This actually gives me some volume, which is not what I expected but a nice bonus. Many shampoos make my hair either really dry or just too flat, but this is somewhere in between, which is perfect. But don't expect this shampoo to make your hair sleek, straight and shiny if it's naturally thick and frizzy!

I think that it is the most moisturizing shampoo that I've ever tried. The worst thing is that I feel that it does not clean deeply the hair.

I love the consistency and smell of this shampoo! It lathers well and does not strip my hair from it's natural oils. The only downfall is that it makes my hair feel a bit "heavy" and a bit hard to manage. Other that that a great product!

I am using both the Shampoo and Conditioner from the same line for about two weeks now. I wash my hair every other day (because I live in a very humid, hot, and polluted city). It's been great so far. I was experiencing very dry hair and breakage from trying to use shampoo bars and more natural shampoos. It has helped with my dry, flaky scalp and greasy roots with dry ends. Now my scalp is not itchy, doesn't flake, and my hair is much more balanced and moisturised. Would repurchase and recommend.
